    All I know is the voltage of PCI-E slots is lower than PCI-X. You can put a PCI card in a PCI-X slot...but nether in a PCI-E. Ive never seen an adapter to do this,although they may exist...be very careful not to damage your Mac.

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    And for damage read KILL!

    DigiDesign Expansion Version 8.0 is the go for the Mac Pro.

    I'm also curious if the HT-1010 PCIe to PCI expansion works with Protools. OP, or anyone else, have you had any luck with this?
